In the book "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair, the proletariat refers to the working-class individuals, especially those in the meatpacking industry like Jurgis Rudkus and his family. They were often exploited, faced poor working conditions, and struggled to make ends meet. Their experiences highlight the injustices faced by workers in industrialized America during the early 20th century.
